While some don’t dare to get too wet in a topic NFT And from here blockchainAnd Like Activision-Blizzard, and others firmly believe in these practices. It is for Yusuke Matsudapresident Square Enixwho was already He announced during the transition to the new year that he observed all this closelyIt is a way for players to invest more in creating the games they play. And after several months, her interest has not waned, despite the numerous failures in the matter by other competitors.
Blockchain is the future according to Square Enix
In a new interview with Yahoo Japanrelayed by VGCAnd Matsuda is quite pessimistic that traditional games can continue to be enough to keep the publisher financially healthy..
this is the reason He believes that blockchain can help, with play-type games to earnincluding allowing users to create content for games, with the bonus:
” In the future, we would like to try our hand at providing “standalone game content”. So far, in most games, we have provided the content as the final product and players have played that content. However, there are a number of gamers around the world who would like to help make games more exciting, by creating new settings and new ways to play. In the future, we want to use the creativity of these people to create games that will continue to evolve. If, instead of relying on the goodwill of all, we can also provide incentives to those who contribute to development using technologies such as blockchain, it is possible to create innovative and interesting content from the ideas of each one. »
We can then reply that users can actually create new content on games with mods, without the need for a blockchain, but Matsuda is clearly looking to have an economy behind it, so that the publisher can create all these new creations (and thus not just to pay players the origin of these creations). Let’s not be naive.)
It’s still all in a thought stage at the moment if we’re to believe those words, but seeing such interest in blockchain from the Square Enix head suggests that very soon the publisher could begin the first tests more realistically (and hopefully I’m wrong).
